From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures S&P 500 and DOW futures are mostly unchanged (fair value).
Oil prices were up over the last week with WTI futures at $72.07 per barrel and Brent at $74.10 per barrel. A year ago, WTI was at $41, and Brent was at $43 – so WTI oil prices are UP about 75% year-over-year (oil prices collapsed at the beginning of the pandemic).
